, that is, said mitt romney's policies would favor the rich and mitt romney doesn't care about people like them. president obama's driving that message, going after mitt romney's predictions that he'll be tough on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to dial back on taxes. >> individual income taxes are the ones i want to reform, make them simpler, bring the

the african-american community are supporting mitt romney? >> no, absolutely. there's all sorts of policies that are hostile to blacks, hostile to hispanics, hostile to gays, hostile to women. i mean, the party only seems to love corporations which it thinks are people and rich people. everybody else we don't care about you. didn't he say he didn't care about 47% of the country? >> i believe did he. >> i this i the percentage is a bit low. and once again we see the party is putting the party ahead of the country which we see with the entire obstruction strategy which should be a national scandal. >> professor, you have to repeat those words from that caller to mr. limbaugh and i suppose that's why they want all these illegals into the country. you know, damn right. he obviously doesn't realize this current president has been draconian in pursuit of illegal immigration, has spent more money, there are more border patrols on the ground, and yet somehow the caller says this to mr. limbaugh and his response, damn right. >> well, first of all, martin, you're confusing the matter here. you're dea
. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so many ways this is also domestic policy, these wars. first of all, veterans benefits and the fact that the romney camp views this as part of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to t
't rise to the level of the 47% comment that everyone was abscessed with last week around mitt romney because this campaign isn't being designed by foreign policy and most polls have shown obama has a nice cushion there, and i think because mitt romney has had his own fumbles, if he could show more competency on these other issues, the voters might give him he benefit of the doubt. in our own political, georgia washington survey today, you see the president expanding the lead. >> eliot: david was being nice he hasn't just fumbled the football here. we all remember the era when we did feel as though we were under siege, will they have any traction on that issue? >> it doesn't seem likely. think of how -- you know how he fumbled this thing with israel. one of our allies instead of our main ally come on. if it was syria, then yeah that would be a bad screw up, but come on. >> eliot: i agree this is parsing syntax that shows how desperate the other side is. and david, so let me come back to you, that's what i continue to marvel at. mitt romney has not given the speech

be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be talking about ideas. allow the super pacs to be do that, these outside groups tending hundreds of millions of dollars on television ads, let them be the ones who go out and attack barack obama, not mitt romney. so in many ways i think there's a level of frustration with the romney campaign from conservatives that it has not been as effective. the unemployment rate is over 8%. republicans think they should be winning and right now it's neck and neck if not a bit of a lead for president obama. >> of course the presidenti
policy and it is one that the american people largely agree with. you know, if governor romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. when it comes to our national security cisions, any pressure that i feel is simply to do what's right for the american people. i am going to block out any noise that's out there. >> was he calling binyamin netanyahu noise and having copping dialogue on this? >> not at all. the president's record with respect to strong support for israel would be one of his finest accomplishments in office, security and military and intelligence cooperation between the united states and israel under president obama's leadership is actually historic. talk to the people in the southern israeli and how they are now protected by the iron dome, anti-missile system which president obama has been instrumental in helping to pay for, israel's military qualitative edge continues to be extremely strong. we have had the largest joint military exercises between the united states and israel under president obama's leadership and there is more to come. whet
foreign policy and one that the american people largely agree with. so, you know, if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> that was nbc's andrea mitchell reporting. >>> this morning iran is responding to netanyahu's red line comments saying it reserves the right to retaliate against any attack. meantime, new internal israeli government report finds that international sanctions are, in fact, hurting iran's economy but have not slowed down the nuclear program. the report calls for another round of sanctions to be implemented. >> in the race for the white house, we have got new batch of poll numbers coming out on three more battleground states. according to the new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist college poll, the president has a slim lead over voters in north carolina where the democrats held their national convention earlier this month. obama won the state in 2008 by less than 1%. he also has a two-point advantage in nevada, well within the margin of error and in new hampshire where mitt romney owns a home, obama leads 51% to 44%. in all

[ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> coming up, ty burrell and "modern family" takes over "gma." go nowhere. >> live and in hd, this is an abc 7 news update. >> good morning. it is 7:56. i am brad bell. there will be a ceremony today t of greyhoundar service at union station. start serving union station tomorrow. the terminal was sold last year. in the firestorm of the nfl officials was on display at the game last night. away with a victory r an interception on the -- it was ruled to be a touchdown. news channel 8 will have an in- theh report at the top of hour. out what is on the road. >> good morning. we start with our metro note. blue and orange line riders -- there single tracking on between orange lines and federalet center. youris when to impact drive with delays. your drive is being impacted crash on the bw parkway southbound at powder mill road. blocking the left lane. the beltway in montgomery county. the innerme delays on making your way georgia avenue. on therdana from 95 loop. get a
that and start talking about the policies. the policies are ones where i hope that governor romney is able to point out the things that president obama has said that, if the economy doesn't get better, if jobs don't get better, he doesn't deserve a second term. we still have those issues in ohio and pennsylvania, where although ohio has improved some of its unemployment, we still have concerns about manufacturing, about steel, about health care issues, about energy, which are grave concerns in both of those states. and they have to be addressed by both candidates. >> right. and this memo, by beth myers, senior adviser, highlights some of that which you just said. but she says things like, he's a universally acclaimed public speaker, he has substantial debate experience, he's a uniquely gifted speaker. all speaking about president obama. the memo goes on to say that he's been in eight presidential debates compared to -- which i guess would be five with hillary clinton and three with -- with john mccain. but this, of course, would be the very first debate for -- for governor romney. the cyni
world. on monday mitt romney criticized u.s. policy towards iran and the middle east, saying it should not be conducted at the mercy of events overseas. >>> wildfires out west have turned deadly as crews battling the destructive blazes in southern california recovered the body of a man who ignored orders to evacuate. dozens of homes have been destroyed as fire fighters battle wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour, fanning the flames. >>> now for a look at what's trending today, our quick roundup of what has you talking online. a los angeles judge has ordered a review of singer chris brown's community service restraining orders it make sure he didn't violate his probation for the 2009 beating of his then girlfriend rihanna. oddly rihanna tweeted her support, praying for you, baby. my best wishes are with you. the judge gave brown a pass on a failed marijuana test noting that he had a prescription for medical usage and that mandatory drug testing was not part of his sentence. >>> well, this taxi cab fight on the streets of new york is going viral. it's not unusual to see rush hour disputes
, either mitt romney or paul ryan. or in a campaign ad specifically on this tax policy center analysis. now, the heritage foundation has a very detailed pushback in which it says that the tax policy center is off its rocker and that essentially that it is as rich said cooking the books because it is choosing which deductions and credits are on the table and off the table in its analysis and that mitt romney's plan when you deal with congress could eventually get to the point where you get to the number needed to keep it revenue neutral. and you can get there. but the tax policy center doesn't and so they get to the point where well you can't get to the number so he's going to have to raise taxes on the middle class. dagen: why aren't they fighting back with ads? >> i have no clue. i mean i really have no chlue. i think a lot of republicans are saying the same thing. we are one week away from the debate in denver and there will have to be some pushback because you know the president will be armed with that very tax policy center stat. dagen: some people are talking about the debates that thi
facing this campaign. first, when is the last time that governor mitt romney gave a speech or did an event or otherwise made some sort of policy news that had an impact on voters and on this race? >> i mean i don't know. it's been a while. that is one of the things about these campaigns. not that romney has lost it all in one moment through a fatal gaffe although there have been bad moments but every day he's losing it day by day each day in a new and creative method and i think it's very tricky and what you're starting to see in the quotes there is a potential for republican -- for kind of, you know, staffer starting to give premore tems to the press, spin how it's not their fault. toward the enof the mccain campaign they were preparing internal memos of how to exonerate themselves of blame. you'll start to see that coming. when that kind of thing comes, republican money people start to smell it and look for other places to put their resources. >> melissa, is there extra credit for losing creatively? you're a teacher and educator. >> i mean there actually is extra credit for losi
on foreign policy are now taking center stage. in the must win battleground of colorado, mitt romney previewed his foreign policy argument against the president. >> he said the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. yeah, that was my reaction. bumps in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. >> the white house called that assault desperate and offensive. romney was attacking the president's comments on "60 minutes" describing recent unrest in the middle east. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain there are going to be bumps in the road. because in a lot of these places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> reporter: romney criticized the president's remarks in more detail. >> includes a muslim brotherhood individual becoming president of egypt, syria in tumult, iran on the cusp of nuclear capability, it includes pakistan being in commotion. there are extraordinary events going on in the middle east. considering those events, either one of them or all of them collectively as bumps i
of ideological divergence between romney and obama. those are the two critical issues here. on foreign policy generally the president has had an advantage. somewhat unusual for a democrat. seen more capable handling foreign policy. his job approval have been better than ratings on domestic policy. but with netanyahu raising the question -- with the differences being made so visible by netanyahu's own visibility, the question for jewish support in a couple places that could matter. it's not inconceivable given the arguments from the israeli prime minister. >> they're not going to meet face-to-face. they're both obviously here in the united states. but there will be a phone call tomorrow. what's the political fallout from this decision that someone made that the president should not get together with netanyahu during these final weeks of this election? >> well, look, relationships are fraught between president obama and netanyahu as they were between clinton and netanyahu. netanyahu and his view of the world and what it takes to make israel secure is closer to a neocon republican view of what i
, good morning everyone. we're expecting president obama to answer some foreign policy criticism this morning when he addresses the united nations general assembly. mitt romney is attacking the president claiming he's downplaying the protests in the middle east. here's what he had to say yesterday during a campaign event in colorado. >> he said the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. [ laughter ] yeah, that was my reaction. butches in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. >> romney really taking any chance he can to politicize these attacks. the white house's jay carney responded to romney's remark yesterday calling it a desperate attempt to find the political advantage and in this case, it is profoundly offensive. today at the u.n. assembly, president obama plans on addressing a wide range of foreign policy issues denouncing both the violence in the middle east and the anti-islam film that sparked some of the protests. he'll also give a renewed warning to iran to put a stop to its nuc
that, probably true internationally and in politics it's true in terms of domestic policy and we've seen that play out in this campaign. as he's done letterman, leno, sat down with "people" magazine, and mitt romney has done plenty of these things too. this is not a barack obama or mitt romney thing. >> i'm just asking about the timing. >> what they' trying do is reacindependentoters who havet t m u y and they think they may get them and female voters, get them through "the view." the timing makes it look more like he is focused on campaigning first andoremost than being president first and forest and has opened h up to cdeerismro republicans about,ou know, how do you have it time on your schedule to do a midday talk show and to not sit down with some of these people. i just return to jeff's point, it's because he understands that any meetings here areraug tact a exactly six weeks away from a very contentious election and he doesn't want t go down that road. you can debate whether that's the right or wrong thing for the president to do but it is the political thing that is being
to be talking about the op-ed written by mitt romney and a new course for the middle east and we have seen a lot of issues going on in foreign policy not the least of which is what happens september 11th, so depending on demographics if you watch the woman's talk show you had a certain glimpse of what happened and if you watch the sunday programs, you had a completely different glimpse, and of course if you listen to press conferences, you had a third iteration of what potentially happened. with the previous welcome can you tell me that foreign policy shoved its way to the shop of the list of the platform for the election and tell me the insights as to mitt romney in the pc road today in the journal. >> well, first of all, i think it is going to be a big issue in the campaign. i still think this week is going to be dominated by the economy, but you're seeing foreign policy and national security percolate up the ladder as far as what issues are going to matter in november, and here is why. obviously we can talk about the economy and what a mess it has been and that barack obama hasn't fulfilled h
policies that have not created the jobs america needs, then you know it's time to choose a new leader. >> gretchen: we've been talk being it all morning, recent polls show that governor mitt romney is trailing the president by as much as ten points in the very important state of ohio. so should we believe the poll numbers? let's ask the co-host of "the five," andrea and juan williams. good morning. >> good morning. >> gretchen: andrea, should we believe the polls? >> not all of them, no. you played the sound from karl rove on "the o'reilly factor" last night explaining that the sample is off in a lot of these polls. are we really to believe that cbs "new york times" and the "washington post" poll and others are banking on the fact that president obama is not just going to reach 2008 turnout levels, but he's going to blow them out of the water? no. so still, you have to look at these polls and you have to look at them skeptically. i do think in some of them, ohio particularly, the president is leading a slight bit. but what does it tell when you the media actually has to skew the polls
